Nintendo's acclaimed Fire Emblem series will be making its debut on Nintendo 3DS this year.
The gaming giant has confirmed a 2012 European release for the latest instalment in the popular tactical role-playing series, which promises to feature strategic battles, an epic fantasy story, full voice acting and a lavish anime art style.
It will also be one of the first 3DS games to offer premium downloadable content, which will be available to purchase following the launch of the main game.
It means fans will be able to look forward to new maps and characters becoming available as DLC add-ons.
However, the series did not receive a Western release until after the launch of the blockbuster GameCube fighting game Super Smash Bros Melee in 2002, which included Fire Emblem characters Marth and Roy as playable characters.
